I AM AMAZED AT THE CLARITY THAT FOLLOWS
“Stephanie is a BRILLIANT life coach. Every time I have a conversation with her, I am amazed at the clarity that follows. Regardless of the length, from 5 minutes to 90 minutes, each call leaves me with the same life-changing impact. Even more, Stephanie fosters an environment of safety and trust with each call – I always feel as though I can share any detail or answer any question without shame or distrust. I’m always amazed at how easy it is to talk to her! Stephanie has a patient, wholehearted method that allows me to leave every call mentally defogged, empowered, and ready to take action.” – Amanda Mercer
ONE OF THE BEST COACHES YOU CAN HAVE IN YOUR CORNER
For as long as I can remember, I was walking a path surrounded by self-doubt, stress, and anger. Between my day job, pursuing my passion in fitness, my family life, and the way I would react to stress, I was feeling myself burn out. I do have amazing positive influences in my life that have helped me stave off negative emotions and keep my resilience tank topped off. However, that’s only temporary. I got to a point in my life where I just reached emotional fatigue. Whenever I would let my guard down for a moment, that’s when I would feel life delivering a bad right hook to the head. I would lose control of my emotions and the way I thought and it began to negatively affect relationships with the people closest to me. When the opportunity presented itself to work with Stephanie, I just had to seize it. I didn’t know what to expect. As part-time Fitness Coach, I originally thought we’d talk about steering my career towards the fitness industry. Instead, through wholehearted conversation, she took the time to hear my stories and provide tools to respond to those daily challenges life throws out there. Stephanie has helped me be more aware of how to implement my natural skills in everyday activities; to assess how my core values are impacted if someone tries to put me down; and how raising a family is about taking your time in order to admire the fruits your labour years down the road, rather than seeking quick results. Thanks to Stephanie, I have been able to work with my emotions. It requires effort and commitment to yourself. The assigned homework is what keeps me accountable to be the resilient husband and father I need and want to be. Stephanie is one of the best coaches you can have in your corner. – J.S.
GETS STRAIGHT TO THE HEART OF YOUR CONFLICTS AND ASPIRATIONS
“Stephanie is a superb coach and listener who has the uncanny knack for getting straight to the heart of your conflicts and aspirations. She guides her clients with empathy, humor, and wisdom. I look forward to my sessions with Stephanie because I feel honored by her and encouraged to make life changes with commitment and grace.” – Debby Phelps
TURNED 15 MINUTES OF CONVERSATION INTO A LIFE-CHANGING MOMENT
“Stephanie has the ability to take fifteen minutes of conversation and turn them into a life-changing moment. I′ve had several such experiences with her. She goes straight to the heart of the matter, helping you discover the answer to your heart′s cries yourself, then encouraging you to step into their fulfillment by showing you how the impossible really is within your reach. There is no sense of hype or cheerleading, just authentic scaffolding. I′m blessed that I can look back over the past few years and see that visits with Stephanie are consistently major pivot points to the direction I am going with my life. At each occasion, I walk away with a greater sense of my identity, my purpose, and practical tools for embracing those more fully in the midst of current situations.” – Mary H.
THE WEIGHT OF FEELING LIKE A FAILURE WAS LIFTED
“Real,” is the word that would best describe working with Stephanie. Her ability to bring out the REAL you is breathtaking and brings a sense of relief. With all the right questions and an incredible sense of understanding, Stephanie brings forth an open conversation that allows you to get vulnerable with yourself and the situations going on in your life. In my first session with her I cried. I had a feeling of failure that came out from underneath all the fear I had placed over it. It became uncomfortable for me as she began to ask questions that targeted that area. What I didn’t know was that the more uncomfortable I got with myself the more the weight of feeling like a failure was being lifted. She was able to help me get out of rut I didn’t even know I was in. Her wisdom of knowing how to ask the right questions at the right time and her strength of listening is a combination of one incredible mentor. It was a blessing being able to work with her and get her insights and knowledge on how to STEP forward to becoming the best YOU!
POSITIVE AND ENCOURAGING
“Stephanie is the kind of person that everyone would benefit from having as a coach. Her listening skills are excellent! She is never critical but is always positive and encouraging. She engages you in such a way that you think more seriously about how to respond to life situations with a more positive approach. The homework assignments were right on target. I would recommend her as a coach because of the way she approaches various life issues.” – I. Gaines
WEIGHT LOSS AND FINDING PURPOSE
“I want you to know how amazed I am that in a very short period of time, God has used you to save my life and help me to discover my passion and my purpose. If I could tell you how excited I am you would laugh. I do not think I have known this kind of inner joy for myself in forever.” – Charline M.
URGENCY TOWARD ACHIEVING MY GOALS
“Anxiety used to be the default setting for my mind, but through a conditioning technique used in one coaching session, I learned to control it or even make it go away. Every time I start to feel anxious, I remind myself that I can choose to laugh instead. As I have continued coaching with Stephanie, I have noticed that I am experiencing a new and welcome sense of urgency towards achieving my goals. I come home from work and automatically focus on doing something related to my goals. I no longer feel the usual conflict; no feeling of holding myself back. When I find myself distracted, I am now able to refocus on my goals quite quickly. I have been looking for the ability to do that for a long time.” – Stephen V.
CAREER CHANGE AND DECISION TO MOVE
“Thank you so much for inspiring me to change my life. After one heart-to-heart with you, I left feeling empowered. You broke down a lot of great tactical planning strategies for me and pushed me to make the leap! Thank you for your insight and encouragement. I appreciate you more than you know!” – Nicole L.
WEIGHT LOSS AND PURSUING DREAMS
“I had heard of stage coaches and football coaches, but I had never heard of life coaches. I was familiar with procrastination and was quite good at it. But then I met a “life coach”. After my first conversation with Stephanie, I realized life coaching was exactly what I needed. I′m now breaking bad habits, losing substantial amounts of weight and pursuing dreams. I highly recommend Stephanie to anyone needing to get ahead in life.” – G. Lane Bass
